Below is the final tally of votes. There are a few adjustments from the final tally that need
further explanation:

  • During the voting period, Valentine Darling chose to withdraw their name from the election due to other time commitments.
  • Another factor that has come into play is our regional rule for Directors. No more than two Directors may have a primary residence in the same geographic region as another Director.
  • There are two nominees, Liz Locatelli and Thomas Tran, located in the Northern California region. The Board currently has a member already seated from the same region which means that only one seat was available to a candidate in that region. As Liz Locatelli received more votes, she was elected to the Director seat.
